Forum: web Subject: Question on Viewing Pages Via Wayback (AKA the world's most excessively long message board Post in Glorious Technicolor/Panavision)

When I search for a webpage/website I operate, it says "Sorry, no matches.". However, whe I click "Click here to search for all pages on [Insert Website Here]", is says that it has 134 pages from the site, and lets me view some of the pages.

I am just wondering, what could be causing this, and why at one point it says "Sorry, No Matches" and then, after clicking "Click here to search for all pages....", shows a list of archived pages from the site, some of which it will let me view (which are different to how the website is now). I will note that the site was started in February, 2008. I have also noticed the same happening with other people's sites using the same programme/host ("Blogspot", which due to my limited Internet knowledge, I have no idea what the exact technical term for such type of site is).

The big question though, is whether my website will be viewable at a later time the same way most other pages are viewable.

My Pages:

Randomly chosen Other Person's pages that is representative of how most pages results look:

I am also curious why some webpages have the same type of result as mine, and why some come up like the 2nd image (regardless of what provider they use, though my type of case seems to be happen more with Blogspot, than with "regular" websites such as site seen in 2nd image).

Also note that as it is nearly summer where I live and the days are getting annoyingly hot, my typing/spelling skills are *even worse* than usual. I am also concerned that I repeated several lines/parts of this post accidentally, something I accidentally do quite often.

When you request a specific URL, the results show only if we have that exact URL. When you choose the 'all pages' option, it looks for any URLs that are *extensions* of the original URL fragment. I believe that's what you're seeing: we don't have the 'root' page, but do have other longer URLs on the same site.

Thanks for the answer, that does seem to be the case.
